First ever book affair stuff! Of course, with the ever beautiful, Ms. Bebang. Finally, we met after almost two years! 🙂
Nilagpasan niya ako, nagets ko na. Hindi niya ako naaalala. Inabot ko ang libro para pirmahan niya.
“Hi, parang nagkita na tayo!”
Ngumiti ako at sa isip ko, “yes! Naalala na niya”.
Sabay sabing, anong name mo? (Para ilalagay sa book).
“Gazelle po”. (naku, hindi pala ata)
“Anong spelling?”
Sinulat ko sa isang papel ang spelling.
Kitang kita ang singkit na mata niyang biglang nanlaki matapos mabasa ang pangalan ko. yes, narealize niya na sa wakas!

My Bible Photo (c) Me
Got a one-week sermon from the Lord. The most unforgettable encounter with God. It’s as if I’m learning directly under His feet. Such an awesome feeling!
Here’s some of it:
Sunday: 1 Cor. 10:31 -“…whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
Monday: 1 Cor. 15:57 – “He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ”
Tuesday: John 14:27 – “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart…”
Wednesday: 1 Corinthians 2:5-11 – “Forgiveness for the offender”
Thursday: John 20:19-23 – God asked me, “Are you willing?”
Friday: Romans 12:19-21 – “Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good”
Saturday: Psalm 3:3 – “But you, O Lord, are shield for me, my glory, and the lifter of my head”
Isn’t He a sweet, sweet, God? :’)
